Oh No, it's Over!

Can you believe it, the Commonwealth Games are over already?

I had so much fun, watching the athletics at the MCG, going to all of the fantastic events in the city as well as watching the Opening Ceremony on the big screen.

Last night we went back in to the city to watch the Closing Ceremony on the big screen. Lots of other people found out about how much fun it was to watch the Games in at Alexandra Gardens, so this time it was packed and there were millions of people there. Luckily some of my friends came along too and Ethan, Tahlia, Amelia and Zac had a picnic with us.

As we waited for the Ceremony, we listened to Paul Kelly sing some songs so that we could all have a dance. Then after the music, we had races in between all of the people. We had heaps of fun, and even when we ran really far away from the adults we didn't get lost!

Finally it was time for the Closing Ceremony to begin. We could watch all of the singers and performers on the big screen, as well as watching the fireworks as they exploded into the sky. It was pretty amazing.

Unfortunately I had run around way too much already and used up all of my energy. Milli and I both fell asleep before the really big fireworks. I didn't really get to see much of the ceremony at all, but I still had a great time.

How many sleeps until the next Commonwealth Games? I hope it isn't too long, I can't wait.

Love AJ Pickle

Can I sleep here until the Games begin again?
